M1 monoblocks are also where I want to end up. All this mind you assuming Esoteric does not surprise us in 1st half of 2018 with a Grandioso P1X, D1X, C1X, etc....(I have audio nightmares about these type of surprises <LOL>!!!)
Wow! Sounds like 2018 could see some surprises from you!

Mark, It was really great to spend time with you discussing different types of music and the different audio gear out there! I’m glad you had a blast and got to hear all the systems. Looking forward to your next visit, hopefully my theater will be good to go by then!

Phenomenal stuff guys, I love reading through threads like this. Ivan is the uber-host and some of the AA's do get to get back home with a long lasting sense of joy, admiration and comradery every time. Fantastic!
